The Weeknd was able to make it to Coachella in a co-headlining slot with Swedish House Mafia after Kanye West cancelled his performance. While this show was well-received, not all of us can make it out to Coachella every year. With that in mind, there’s something that The Weeknd’s fans should not miss that you can watch right from your TV. Head over to Amazon Prime Video for The Weeknd x The Dawn FM Experience right now!
This R&B-inflected singer has topped the charts several times in his career of just over ten years. None of his studio albums have charted below #2 on the U.S. Billboard 200, and he's now on a critical hot streak with his last two albums as well. While his first three received moderately good reviews, After Hours and Dawn FM ended up with Metacritic scores of 80 and 88, respectively. Fans also raved about Dawn FM, making it a success on every front.
The Movie Version
The Weeknd x The Dawn FM Experience is a rare album companion that in no way gets in the way of the music. Abel Tesfaye dons the signature album cover makeup, and along with the requisite moments of reflection and despair, the short film version often plays out like an exclusive rave and conceptual concert in the best ways. This experience captures the retro-dance side as well as his usual emotional grip all at once.
